Floral crochet blanket patterns

I’ve seen so many gorgeous floral crochet blanket patterns in my life.   When I was a little girl, my Grandmother made the most gorgeous crochet blankets for us.  Each year for Christmas, we would receive a blanket that she lovingly crocheted for us.  The colors and patterns were always different and I always admired the time and attention she put into each one.  These crocheted blankets are gifts that I’ll treasure for the rest of my life and then pass them down to my children so they can enjoy them.

If you’re searching for crochet gift ideas for the holidays or another occasion, 75 Floral Blocks to Crochet: Beautiful Patterns to Mix and Match for Afghans, Throws, Baby Blankets and More by Betty Barnden is a collection of  square, triangular, diamond, and hexagonal floral blocks.  These floral blocks offer a bit of everything from petals and rosebuds to colorful, three dimensional flowers and butterflies.  The book begins with an introduction to useful techniques for those that may be new to crocheting.  You’ll learn to crochet in straight rows, in the round, and corner to corner.   There is also information on how to join the blocks and create edgings.

Each of the floral blocks is separated into its own chapter.  There is a directory of blocks that is categorized by shape that showcases each design.  It is then cross referenced by row by row written directions and includes handy charts as well.   Each block has a picture, photograph and diagram of the block. It has step by step written directions, a key, the method of working and the skill level.  It’s very easy to find exactly what you’re looking for by turning to the directory.  Each floral block shown in the directory has a number that corresponds to a numbered pattern.

The final chapter of the book has a few projects you can create using the floral blocks besides afghans, throws, and blankets.  Projects include flower purses, a cushion and a scarf.  If you’re looking for crochet gift ideas, 75 Floral Blocks to Crochet: Beautiful Patterns to Mix and Match for Afghans, Throws, Baby Blankets, and More
is definitely a book that will give you some beautiful ideas.

    Thanks for sharing! This would make a perfect Christmas gift for my mother-in-law.
  4. I learned how to crochet when I was still in high school, but that was over 10 years ago so now I don't remember :( Crocheted items do make great gifts!
